The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested a former governor of Imo State, Mr. Achike Udenwa, in connection with alleged financial misconduct.

A source close to the commission said the former governor, as a State Co-ordinator for the Presidential Campaign Organisation in Imo State, allegedly collected N350 million from the former Minister of Finance, Nenadi Usman.

He is alleged to have admitted receiving the money in three instalments.

Mr. Udenwa became governor of Imo State in 1999, won the re-election in 2003 and his tenure ended in 2007.

He later became Minister of Commerce and Industry between 2008 and 2010 under the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan.
